Sock 2

There's nothing like a long weekend to get you refreshed and ready for more! It might be a bit sad, but I've been thinking about this game a lot over the past few days, so I'm excited to get back into it.

Today's Tips:

  • If, for some reason, you'd like to give somebody else some Gold, you can transfer any amount to another as your daily action.
  • Stay on top of your levels! If you gain one, please notify me of your job level choice as soon as you can, and I'll record it (unless I'm an idiot and forget, which has happened a few times). Some people have been slipping up lately, and while I try to get back to everybody who is "missing" levels, I might overlook you.
  • If you're ever asleep, definitely try to take an action nevertheless. If you wake up (and there's a 40% chance that that will happen), you'll execute your action as normal.

Here she blows!

e) Aquarius (45 Points)
Levels 6-01 and 6-02, they were! Man, I loved that theme music.

b) Jeff (75 Points)
This one was tough. Jeff is a character from Maniac Mansion, and his theme music is a song by the fictional band "The Goofy Feet." Crazy, eh?


Today's Questions
Today's Consolation Points: 12

#73:
In Fire Emblem: The Scourge of Matt, you're fighting against a boss named Wönders, the last enemy on the battlefield. Your only living character is your hero, named Pimpy. With its only weapon in hand, when faced against Pimpy, Wönders has stats as follows:

  • HP 40
  • Hit 100
  • Mt 23
  • Crt 0
With Pimpy's only weapon in hand, he has stats against Wönders that look like this:
  • HP 29
  • Hit 80
  • Mt 7 (x2)
  • Crt 8
It's the Player's turn, so Pimpy will get the first blow; Pimpy's weapon is also short-ranged. Assuming that this duel will consist only of exchanging blows back and forth, and that no special abilities, healing, or weapon breaks occur, then what is the probability that Pimpy will emerge victorious?
(60 Gold)

a) 0 (Poor Pimpy is doomed.)
b) 0.0041
c) 0.0819
d) 0.1126
e) 0.1600


#74:
If evolution carried out in the way that E.V.O.: Search for Eden indicates, then what "mammal" did monkeys, and ultimately humans, come from?
(50 Points)

a) A bear-like animal without much fur
b) A pink cave troll
c) A rabbit/cat hybrid
d) A kangaroo-like creature with dog jaws
e) A large-bodied chipmunk with no tail



Submission Form


Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
